Consider this speedy salmon dish a fall anecdote to a holiday season filled with rich stews, braises, and roasts. The tart, bright citrus topper cuts through the natural fattiness of the salmon; it would overwhelm lighter fish like cod or flounder. Serve for a simple, elegant date night, or double to serve 4. After freeing the citrus sections, squeeze the membranes over a bowl and make a quick vinaigrette for enjoying during the week. Change up the salsa with chopped tart-crisp apples and a seeded minced jalapeño, or try diced ripe pear and pomegranate arils.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
2 (6-oz.) salmon fillets, skinned
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup grapefruit sections
1/2 cup orange sections
1/4 cup thinly sliced shallots
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
